Uganda People's Defence Force soldiers patrol near the border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo after they battled Allied Democratic Forces in March 2007. AFPKatojo is one of the biggest government correctional facilities or prison in south western Uganda. Located about seven kilometres from Fort-portal town it is sandwiched between the Muhoti Military Barracks and one of the deepest crater lakes in East Africa, Saka. This is also the home of Mountains of the Moon University.
It is within this location where Tooro’s only airfield is located. The prison, I must say is located in pristine environment; cold, evergreen, and gentle rolling hills. I always wondered why this was the place chosen for a prison and not in the other barren and ragged areas of Tooro…for example (I don’t want to offend anyone) the rocky Kyaka now known as Kyegegwa district.
